so, this evening, how granular do you think the president will be in talking about lbgt equality? and an equality agenda at all? >> i think you're right. we've watched his transformation, his evolution, before our very eyes. and he's become much bolder, to the point where, at the inaugural, he gave a broadly thematic and really aspirational speech, which had, at its core, a message on gay rights. i think, tonight, we will see a much more kind of back to basics speech. i think that, you know, the administration, i think, feels maybe that they overdid it a little bit in the inaugural address, so i think this speech will be much more, you know, back to work, back to basics. >> all right, back to basic. weeks after the election, you wrote a piece in "the new yorker" highlighting eight different things that the president should do for gay rights, a few things, including appointing an openly gay person to the cabinet and making same-sex marriage legal in even more states.
